Hmmmmm, bony roadside front range steep creek, sounds like my cup of tea! I'll be there tomorrow if someone wants to meet me, for some reason I've never managed to hit this. How does it compare to SSV?
Patrick and I will proabably hit this early in the A.M before work...like putting in at 8am or so. You're welcome to join if you want to. As for the comparison, the inbetween is a lot like SSV (technical V-), but the big drops are BIGGER than anything there (read:scary but cool). The Wall section of SSV Narrows is = in difficulty to hardest stuff on Big T. Give a shout if you want to go.
P.S. Anyone else wanting to run this section, before you go check out http://www.coloradokayaking.com/main...s&riverid=BigT
for a description of the class V stuff.
There are 2 short sporty rapids between the park and dam. Below the dam offers the narrows section which is semi-continuous III at this level.Bring your playboat and expect to donate a wee bit of plastic as the "T" is still bony at this level. As mentioned, a great run to get wet on in September. For those looking for a huge HUCK, note the 25 foot drop over the dam at the mouth. While usually too shallow for survival, there is an inordinate amount of agua pumping into the river from a diversion tunnel just above the falls. It has created a huge boiling cauldren above the dam and increased the depth below. If it is deep enough......
Also, do check the AM flow as Estes Lake might have closed the valves at midnight. I was climbing in the canyon around 1pm today and noticed the flow increase. Sadly, it often only runs for 24 hours. Bring your climbing gear just in case. We will boat it around 2pm if it is still running, my # is 970-669-1929.
